RECYCLE YOUR PLANT CONTAINERS
The Shade Tree Commission will re-use your 6-8” plant containers to plant seedlings.  Large Tree Containers are needed too!  Bring them to the Recycling Center located at 899 Perrineville Road open Saturday and Sunday, 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

The Shade Tree Commission meets in the Meeting Room, 215 Millstone Road, Millstone Township, NJ on the second Wednesday of each month at 7:30 pm.

The Millstone Township Shade Tree Commission is charged with " the regulation, planting, care and control of shade and ornamental trees and shrubbery upon and in the streets, highways, public places, parks and parkways of this municipality..."

One of the Commissions primary jobs is to review the landscape plans for major subdivisions and commercial sites and make recommendations to the planning Board regarding the suitability of the proposed plantings.  Once the plan is approved and the plantings are installed, the developer must guarantee survival for one year. After that , trees are the responsibility of the homeowner.
